VIRTUAL POOL 3 Question

Hi guys

i just love Virtual Pool 3 ! I have no doubt it will help my real pool game, mainly in the area of working out the cue ball path and cue ball control

anyway, here's the question

you know you can vary the Tracking force with the F button (in practise mode i'm talking about)

how do you actually take a shot without using the mouse to take the shot ?

can you set the tracking force then press a key to take the shot and the shot is as powerful as the tracking force ?

cheers

I played the demo. I think if you hit the spacebar with the tracking mode on, it will take the shot for you.

Desmond,

No you can not take a shot without using the mouse.

No you can not set the tracking force and then use a key to take a shot as powerful as the tracking force.

The game is excellent.. especially the Jeanette tutorials.

Hmm... I seem to recall being able to hit the spacebar to take the exact shot shown by the tracking lines. Maybe it was one of the earlier versions of Virtual Pool...

is this game free yet?

You can only do this in practice mode.

Hi guys, i've worked it out

In practise mode, the space bar does work for taking the shot the same strength as the tracking force

In career mode you don't get the tracking lines anyway (well not in my version)

There is a separate trainer program you can get but it doesn't work with my version of the game

bdshort, um yes the game can be downloaded but i can't say where cos that would be against the rules

Seriously i would buy an original if shops in my city had one for sale ! they don't have it so i didn't have any option
